Embracing Mobile-First Digital Transformation

We live in a highly connected digital age. A significant 76% of consumers favor brands with mobile apps, and job seekers now expect a seamless online employment experience.

During the height of the pandemic, they set themselves up to quickly scale by establishing a groundbreaking mobile staffing experience that simplified operations and engaged employees where they’re most active – on their smartphones. Today, with technology at the core of their operations, Shiftfillers serves as a prime example of how embracing digital transformation and a mobile-forward approach can lead to extraordinary growth in the staffing industry.

“From the outset, we knew we wanted to be a very tech-enabled company. We began Shiftfillers by asking ourselves: how can we make staffing easier for everyone? And our answer was technology. That meant we needed a really good mobile experience and an even better tech stack.”
